This recipe yields a rich mayonnaise. If you desire a thinner sauce, add a little bit of water to the finished mayonnaise. Makes about 2 cups.

SKU 1316-recipe


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cup lemon juice
  • 1.5 cup olive oil
  • 1.5 cup canola oil


  1. Place the egg yolks, mustard, salt, and lemon juice in a food processor. Process for 10 seconds.
  2. With motor running, add the oil, drop by drop at first. After a few tablespoons have been added, start adding oil in a thin stream. Continue until all the oil is added and the mayonnaise has thickened. If the mayonnaise has reached your desired consistency before all the oil is used, there is no need to add the remainder. Taste for seasoning, and add a little additional salt or lemon juice if desired.
